Webinar Series: It's All About Teamwork: Incorporating Genetics and Family History into the work of the Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH)

The New England Genetics Collaborative (NEGC) Medical Home Work Group developed a webinar series with the child health/pediatric improvement partnerships in Maine (ME Quality Counts), New Hampshire (NHPIP) and Vermont (VCHIP) to highlight how a team approach to caring for children with genetic and complex conditions within the Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) will improve collaboration, coordination, and satisfaction for families and providers.  This builds on the work of the Genetics in Primary Care Institute (GPCI), a project of the American Academy of Pediatrics.
